Quick Overview
It gives us immense pleasure to bring forth this ‘A Practical Guide to First Trimester of Pregnancy’. The first trimester is fraught with danger, with a 20% risk of losing the fetus during this time. It requires careful vigilance in patients with assisted conceptions, recurrent miscarriages, advanced maternal age, and preexisting medical disorders. Events of the first trimester lay the foundation, as well as seal the fate of a pregnancy. The booking visit is the most crucial visit for the obstetrician and the triaging of antenatal care is decided in the first trimester. We believe that if the first trimester is handled competently, it can save many adverse pregnancy outcomes for both, the mother and the baby.

In this issue, authors have touched on all relevant aspects of the first trimester where the obstetrician may need guidance in decision making. First trimester is the platform on which obstetricians, fetomaternal specialists, endocrinologists, geneticists, sonologists, medical and surgical specialists, dieticians, endoscopists and IVF specialists converge, to ensure a healthy pregnancy.

This book is a practical guide to management of first trimester and its complications and incorporates a blend of accepted guidelines, practical inputs and recent advances.
